About the project

We are an international community of young people who are active across 17 countries worldwide. Our aim is to create awareness of sustainable approaches to consuming and producing food in our cities in support of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, and to have an influential voice in institutional decisions, so we can achieve a fair and sustainable global food system by 2030.
